Half Term Break (and The Sunshine Girl)

As the title says, it’s the half term break from school where everybody (and, no doubt, their uncle) has been ill. It’s been a constant: from the dreaded sickness bug to the cold/flu thingy that just keeps on giving and then gives some more. It’s been awful and we all, children and staff alike, need this break to try to recuperate!

I’ve also been busy writing and am most of the way through a paranormal mystery/thriller  at the moment – and this one’s for over 15s rather than children. It’s been a challenge, mainly because my characters appear to have minds of their own and keep doing/saying things they weren’t supposed to, therefore taking it into different twists and turns I hadn’t originally planned for. Writing this has been as much of a surprise to me as it will be to you!

It’s called ‘The Sunshine Girl’, but it’s quite a lot darker than the name suggests. I’ll be playing with covers after I finish the first draft and am also looking for input from new beta readers as my regular crew work with children’s stories rather than this type.

Let me know if you’d like to be one!

On another note, I am shortly going to have guest bloggers posting on here with content related to writing. I’m pretty excited about it, and I hope you’ll all enjoy their posts as much as I’m sure I will.

Speak to you again soon and thanks for reading!
